Almost two weeks after giving birth to her first child, Yahoo's CEO Marissa Mayer is apparently back at the office and rolling full steam ahead with a planned revamp of the troubled company.

In what is perhaps history's shortest ever maternity leave, the Wall Street Journal's All Things D reported that Mayer inaugurated her return by sending out a new memo to employees, calling for two "Goals All Hands" meetings.

In the document, Mayer tells her troops that Yahoo will soon be "rolling out a new system and process for goals for the company, " according to the report.

"Moving forward, we will have both annual goals and quarterly goals that we will all commit to, track, and grade ourselves based on. The Thursday meetings will roll out the first set of goals at the company level, " Mayer stated in the memo, according to the report.

Yahoo's new goals will be implemented "through the company at the department, team, and individual lever, " she also stated.

She also signed the memo "See you Thursday."
